The “diva of world music” —The Guardian
The voice, the composition, and the interpretation. Mariza returns to the Bing with longtime friends as part of her latest project “Raizes” (“roots”). Of both Portuguese and African descent, Mariza has come to be known as the embodiment of modern fado, Lisbon’s emotion-filled folk music. Her soulful voice expresses the essence of this melancholy art form, a song style dating back to the early 19th century and imbued with themes of longing, separation, and reconnection.
